Our New Workshops Are Here!
We’ve already told you about next week’s cool workshop, when our own Kristy Goode will host a group for watercoloring and hand-lettering a flag to inspire you all year. (There are still a few tickets available if you’d like to join.) But that’s not the only opportunity to spend an evening learning and laughing with Flea Style.
There’s another in late January and one in February and March, too. All workshop attendees get access to Flea Style’s in-house retail shop with 10 percent off all merch and a Flea Style canvas tote. Plus, there will be sips and nibbles — it’s kind of like a casual cocktail party where you can get creative, network and meet new friends.
Macrame Wall Hanging Class with Arrow Wood Designs
The Date: January 26, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
The Deets: Macrame wall hangings have surged in popularity among the boho set in the last year. Some savvy shoppers have been lucky enough to snap up the ‘70s home decor staple from Flea Style! Now you can learn to make your own. No worries if you’ve never worked with yarn even a day in your life: This class is for beginners. Arrow Wood Designs’ Courtney Anderson guides you through the process of making your own chic macrame wall hanging with three core knot techniques. (She’s a former Anthropologie display coordinator who is now creative director at The Gypsy Wagon, so you know she’s got skills!) You’ll leave with a beautiful, handmade, one-of-a-kind work of art, as well as step-by-step instructions to guide you at home when you attempt to go it alone. This one is almost sold out so do not wait to snag your spot if interested!

Candle Making with MAD Candle Co.
The Date: February 9, 5:30-8 p.m.
The Deets: Flea Style vendor MAD Candle Co. is the brainchild of Ashley Penn and her husband, Blake. They upcycle wine, beer and liquor bottles into candles that not only look fun but burn long and clean and smell amazing. At this workshop, Ashley will show you how to color and pour wax to create your own one-of-a-kind candles and we’ll have some cool, boho accents to top off your glass creation for a true work of art. You’ll make two candles in scents that you choose — so you could keep one and give the other as a gift. No experience is necessary; just come and have a blast.

Craft Denim and Cocktails with Flea Style
The Date: March 2, 5:30-8 p.m.
The Deets: Join the Flea Style team for an evening of DIY denim fun! Bring a jean jacket, pair of jeans, cut-offs, vest, whatever denim item you’d like to dress up, and we’ll get busy with an array of new and vintage patches, paint pens, and distressing and fringing techniques. You’ll leave our office with a neat one-of-a-kind piece of clothing, a belly full of snacks and a new friend or two — guaranteed.
